Memorial Day is a day of reflection for me.I think about all those men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrific for our country, allowing us to live freely and make choices. Choices we often take for granted. We are very lucky for their service and what it brings to our lives.What does this have to do with your fitness? Those choices that we are granted, give us the opportunity to change our lives every single day.
